we were on our way to Darwin & this was day six of the trip & it was getting to the "are we there yet?" stage so having a good place to spend the night is important. The Mud Hut Motel definitely fits that bill. Large well appointed rooms. A secure place to park close to your room. Well within... More

After spending all day driving in a car it was lovely to arrive at a very clean and spacious accommodation. The room was lovely and up to date with technology - plenty of USB ports to charge phones and iPads. The free wifi was also a lovely surprise. We chose to stay at the Mud Hut as it was pet... More

We chose the Mud Hut as it was middle of the range in price and my wife does not like being underground. Unfortunately the restaurant was not functioning during our visit, but the manager was very friendly and she went out of her way to recommend eating establishments in the town. She also saw that we had maps and information... More

This is a very clean well kept motel, the rooms are extremely comfortable, well appointed and within walking distance of eateries. The prices are very competitive for the region. The reception has a good knowledge of the attractions in Coober Pedy and will advise on what is worthwhile seeing.

I was very pleased with the rooms cleanliness, spaciousness and coolness when I first walked in. All the normal items were provided in the bathroom except a hair dryer. The kitchen had a microwave, kettle and toaster. The kingsize bed was very comfortable too. I was able to park a large bus within the grounds of the Motel which was... More

We stayed here on our way north. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The decor is a bit dated as are the bathrooms. It has evaporative cooling which is very effective but it is either on or off as there doesn't seem to be any way to regulate the temperature. It has fast and free wifi. Our room didn't... More

The name was obviously chosen because the buildings are made of pressed earth but in fact the buildings are modern and high quality, especially by Coober Pedy standards. The rooms are spacious, clean and cool. You can park your car right outside the room which is a useful security measure in Coober Pedy. The restaurant doesn't seem to be open... More

First thing I noticed about this lovely property was the cleanliness of the hotel and of curse my room. For a dusty piece of the earth the room including the kitchen, lounge and bathroom were impeccably clean. The thick half meter mud brick keeps the room cool and if it gets too hot the air conditioning is very effective. You... More

After a long hot days drive, we arrived in this oasis. the hosts in reception, and even the reception area itself were so welcoming.
